Renee Boutte Myer Featured in LSU Reveille

5269d6790fb9d.imageAs Renee Boutte Myer accepted her homecoming crown, she smiled and waved to a silent audience who stared back at her with dropped jaws.

Myer stepped into civil rights history in a pair of high heels when she became the University’s first African-American homecoming queen.

What separates Myer’s experience from other famous civil rights examples is that it did not happen in the distant past. She was crowned in 1991 – only 22 years ago, the same year many 2014 graduating seniors were born.
